The full list of candidates

Here is an updated list of all candidates mentioned in the press to replace Wolfowitz as head of the World Bank Group.

They are all men with the exception of Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, and the less mentioned Carly Fiorina.

Keep in mind , as this AP story says:

“By tradition, the World Bank has been run by an American, and the U.S., the bank’s biggest financial contributor, wants to keep that practice intact. But it’s not a rule, and the United States could pick someone who is not an American to lead the institution.”

Ashraf Ghani
